Change of Guard

June 10th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

As soon as Vanity Fair Italy previewed cover images from Vogue Italia’s “China” issue the internet was abuzz over the non-Meisel round-up of photographers– confirming the whispers that the storied lensman would longer shoot every cover. For models, having a VI cover by Steven Meisel served as a badge of honor and a telltale of imminent visibility.  Steven’s famous partiality for beautiful women and inimitable eye has forecasted and launched numerous careers. So needless to say, his absences after holding the fort since 1988 is big news.

For the the “China” issue, Vogue Italia enlisted Craig McDean, Mario Sorrenti, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and Steven Klein to help carry the weight of Meisel’s absence, shooting a cast of established Chinese beauties Fei Fei Sun, Xiao Wen JuJing Wen and newer faces like Yuan Bo Chao, Fernanda Ly and Gia Tang. Each cover bears the visual thumbprint from this league of extraordinary photographers: McDean’s romantic evocations; Sorrenti’s audacious arrangements; Mert and Marcus’ high-styled narratives and Klein’s surreal interpretations. Whether or not it’s enough to fill the void, the praise-worthy selection of models by these modern masters in celebration of China certainly stands on its own.

Pagan Poetry

August 20th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

There is nothing like a pleasant surprise to get the season started right. The September issue of V comes with a staggering special supplement that focuses on the cerebral beauties at Women & Supreme Management management. The lengthy portfolio by  Paul Rowland re-imagines 19 of the industry’s most captivating faces as pagans – complete with flowers, insects, slabs of serrated flesh and of course, blood. The end result is raw, hypnotic and about a thousand times more interesting than most of the covers we’ve seen this September. Seeing Alana Zimmer, Alla Kostromichova, Behati Prinsloo, Christina Kruse, Daiane Conterato, Darya Kurovska, Georgina Stojiljkovic, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Hannelore Knuts, Iris Strubegger, Isabeli Fontana, Meghan Collison, Mina Cvetkovic, Natasa Vojnovic, Ranya Mordanova, Rose Cordero, Suvi Koponen, Valentina Zeliaeva and Yulia Kharlapanova in this new light highlights not only the versatility of the girls but also the sheer reserves of talent that can be found at these two powerhouse agencies.
